Last weekend I popped back to my old stomping ground of Bath for a January pick-me-up day. Bath is extremely good for the soul, it’s so beautiful and charming and spending a day there never fails to put me in a good mood. James and I spent the day doing a few of my favourite Bath related activities which nicely recreated many of the days we spent whilst I was living there. This involved a cream tea, a stroll along the beautiful canal path and then more food and drink from some of the various delicious eateries dotted around the fair city. I said it was good for the soul, not the waistline! Yum!
Despite saying that I didn’t want to visit any of the shops, I did end up having a cheeky gander in Topshop. I have been after a new pastel coat (I’m so trendy) and was really keen to see the mint one that I wrote about here. On passing the sale rail I caught sight of a coat which I had previously tried (and failed) to buy both online and instore and couldn’t believe that it was my size! I did a very embarrassing clap/jump/squeal thing which I reserve especially for such triumphant moments. It is the perfect coat AND it was half price. I did end up trying on the mint one too, for comparisons sake obviously, and it was no contest. It’s much more fitted and the colour is beautiful. My family actually had a great debate about the colour. It’s mauve, right?
As luck would have it, it also perfectly matched my outfit! So after our walk I took the opportunity to prance around the park in it. I’m quite pleased with the results! I layered it over a pastel pink Primark jumper, which is itself layered over a very pretty white Miss Selfridge dress and white tights. I accessorised with my favourite pink Marks and Spencer handbag. I love how the colours all look together and am most definitely a winter pastels convert!
